#8WTF Day 6

"There are many things we don't like in life but the benefits that they bring far outweigh the temporary discomfort." - Richard Gilmore

Any other Gilmore Girls fans in the house?

Woohoo! Are the cravings setting in yet? I had a bit of a sugar craving hit today and while I ignored it, I kind of ate more food than I planned on. But then again maybe I was just hungry. Yesterday I made Spicy Tuna Cakes from Nom Nom Paleo's book Nom Nom Paleo: Food For Humans. They are one of my favorite things from this book! Last night we also tried the Slow Cooker Chicken and Gravy and hot damn! It was a hit. We will be having more of that during this Whole30.

These tuna cakes are so yummy. Even cold! For breakfast I threw a cold one on my plate along with bacon, eggs, and avocado. So good. Lunch was four more tuna cakes. Snack was the last tuna cake, a mini pear, and half an avocado wrapped in turkey. Of course I gobbled a Larabar (gonna have to take a break from those). My dinner plate was Mediterranean Roast Chicken, sweet potato, and broccoli.

I could have taken today as a rest day but instead chose to work legs and abs. I am still in love with my roman bench. I used my medicine ball on it today and I can guarantee you I will be feeling it tomorrow. I'm calling today a success despite the extra food. It was all Whole30 and I have been getting my workouts in consistently. Progress not perfection.

  1. I'm curious about the chicken and gravy for the slow cooker. May have to try that, the chicken tacos were a big hit here. So much we are having them again tonight. :) I love having dinner done when I get home. I'm defiantly going find more slow cooker recipes.
    I didn't check in yesterday, so thought I would before I worked out. Water and exercise in the bag. Tuesday is 🏀 day! Did great on calorie and carb count during the day, but may have overdone it a little at dinner. Had ribeye, zucchini, corn, cucumbers. AND I made guacamole for the first time (well since I worked at Chiquita's ages ago) lol. I never tried it until recently now I'm in love. It might sound gross but I ate it with the steak 😜😍😍😍 yummy!
    Today's: water ✔ low carb ✔ workout...about to do my fat to fit workout on the balance ball.
